The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Easel Card 15/6/17

The Crafter's Cafe this fortnight has 3 great sponsors.

Prize will be individually designed for the Winner.

Prize £9/$15 Voucher

$15 voucher that can be used for anything in their store

I received some wonderful digital products from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles

Cat 8 from Floral Cats Kit
 Papers from Simple Beauty (1 patterned and 1 textured)
 Flower and Leaf from Trick or Treat Floral Elements.
Something a little different this time.  I have used a patterned paper as the background for the front  of the card and the textured paper for the mason jar and the inside of the card.

The mason jar is a stamp and die set from Stampin up, which has been inked on the sides.  The greenery is also stamps from Stampin up which I masked, stamped on the card, removed the mask and stamped with the remaining ink n the jar, to give them a softer look as though the are in water.

The little green flowers have also been diecut, the leaves and the cat have been fussy cut.  The little fish is another stamp and diecut from Stampin Up.

Stamped sentiments, punches and some bling complete the card.

And here is a Twisted Easel Card using an image from Polka Doodles called Winnie-starfish-sandcastles-relaxing-sunlounger.  Just what I like to be doing right now, lounging under the sun.

Coloured with copic pens and die cut, I have added a sun from Flourish with a Bling.  Inside are 3 wooden shells.  Stamped sentiments completed the card.
